Product Description

Circuit Rhythm’s firmware 2.0 update brings editable Grid FX, Beat Match, Fixed Length Recording and improved arrangement capabilities for greater flexibility with beatmaking.

Novation’s Circuit groovebox has garnered dedicated fans across the globe for its fun and intuitive approach to beatmaking and frequent firmware updates that added new features and a large catalogue of samples to constantly improve the way its users could make music. With the launch of Circuit Rhythm in 2021, the Circuit legacy continued, taking beatmaking, sampling and performance to new heights.

Just in time for the holiday season, Novation is launching the firmware 2.0 update, which adds significant new features to Circuit Rhythm, making it more intuitive than ever to use with more ways for users to be expressive with their beats.

With the new Beat Match feature, Circuit Rhythm owners can speed their samples up or down to get drum breaks perfectly in time with their session and make beats flow seamlessly. Fixed Length Recording lets users record samples in perfect time with their current project. A new toggle in the Sample Record View lets creators choose between a fixed length sample recording of 8, 16, 32, or 64 steps.

Beatmakers can create dynamic sonic performances and take control of grid FX parameters directly from Circuit Rhythm using editable Grid FX, so they can keep their mind on the music. They can also store patterns and muted track states to Scenes to quickly build an arrangement for their beat, without the need to have any empty patterns in a project.

The firmware 2.0 update for Circuit Rhythm opens the doors for truly expressive beats and vibrant performances, giving beatmakers new ways to make music and stay inspired.

Continued innovation through updates

As ever, Novation continues to respond to feedback from the dedicated community of Circuit users. Through regular firmware updates, Novation encourages their users to make music in new creative ways, as well assuring their community the instruments they use have features that will enhance their music making.

With numerous free sample packs available to download, including over 500 sounds across different genres, and new Novation 30th Anniversary packs containing exclusive curated samples, Circuit Rhythm creators can stay inspired and continue to push the limits of their music.

Enhance your creativity and performance with the powerful and versatile Circuit Rhythm workstation. A standalone sampler for the modern beatmaker, the Circuit Rhythm records samples directly to the hardware, then sliced sculpted, reversed, looped, resampled and played chromatically — all in the box. Grid FX invigorate your live performances, with lo-fi tape, stutter, beat repeat effects, and more.

Circuit Rhythm Sample Pack Expansion
Use the six sample packs with over 550 royalty-free samples to add flavor to your tracks. Get inspired by vinyl samples and tight beats spanning hip-hop, trap, neo-soul and more to give your beats new life and bring out your creativity. Packs are available for free through the Novation Components online site.

Eight Sample tracks — each with their own 32-step patterns, chainable for up to 256 steps per track — provide a seamless beat making workflow. Go from a sample to a complete beat with ease using the powerful and hands-on sequencer. Grooves can be quantised or captured off-grid into the sequencer, and probability and pattern mutate controls keep your beats evolving.

Circuit Rhythm’s comprehensive connectivity includes full-size five-pin MIDI in, out, and thru, and analogue sync out, making it the perfect sampler partner to any studio rig. The built-in rechargeable battery provides up to four hours of battery life, so you can make beats on the move, and Novation Components provides a platform to load samples and backup your work.
